New Hampshire State Championship and Open Pairs
The New Hampshire Bridge Association holds its annual State Championship and Open Pairs tournament at the most central location available. It's a truly unique event with a superb meal between sessions Saturday and a banquet with a cash bar Sunday. Everyone who comes has a great time!
The State Championship is a three session event: two qualifying sessions Saturday and a final session Sunday afternoon. Anyone can play in the qualifying sessions but only current or former Unit 150 (NHBA) members can play in the final. Everyone else can play in the one-session Open Pairs that runs concurrently with the final. This is a charity event so the awards are black points.
The Unit 150 (NHBA) Annual Meeting is held before the final session Sunday. The Banquet after the final session includes the announcement of high finishers, the presentation of the Leroy Lake Award, acknowledgements of the winners of the ACBL Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney awards, and other timely announcements.
Daniel McGuire and Wayne Burt are the New Hampshire State Champions again for the fourth time as a partnership. Allen Pattee and Lawrence Cheetham were second.
